Here is the head shot. I'm thinking he's a rooster. .
How old is it? I'm pretty sure it's a hen
It's about 8 weeks I'd say
The comb is not a very reliable as to sex a bird. Especially cochins because you can have late bloomers and early growers.
I'll need a full body shot. Being 8 weeks, its very likely it's a boy because girls don't redeem until they start to lay.
Are there other gray or silvery parts on the bird? A birchen hen will only have silver hackles and the rest is solid black.
This is the full body shot
Oh! It's silver laced. It looks like a boy. Especially being two months.
Yes sorry. I should have mentioned SL Cochin stood for silver laced.
Given the size and redness of its comb and wattles at 8 weeks, you have a cockerel.
